VINEYARD

Cape Barren wines are produced from vineyards particularly hand selected for their exceptional quality and consistency. Our reds are produced from the world renowned McLaren Vale region, from vines older than 45 years. These seriously old vines produce wines of supreme concentration and complexity not seen in younger vines. It is this history on which our future lies. With its picturesque and undulating terrain and maritime climate, McLaren Vale is one of the finest regions in the world for grape-growing — especially forShiraz and Grenache. 

WINEMAKING

All varieties were fermented separately in static upright fermenters for 8-9 days. Gentle pumping of juice over the skin cap to extract the colour and fruit flavours, occurred twice per day until the juice was run off and the skins pressed at about 2°Be. The wines were filled to the barrel after fermentation was complete, and blending occurred just prior to bottling.
